New Martha Speaks Episodes Highlighting the Arts Airing February 21-25

I wanted to let you know that NEW MARTHA SPEAKS EPISODES are coming for President’s Day week, February 21-25! They will be celebrating the arts, specifically opera, classical music, theater, and even Greek myths.

The fun starts with “The Opera Contest” and “Maestro Martha” on Monday, February 21. In “The Opera Contest,” a local opera company is holding a contest to get kids interested in opera. When Martha helps the kids enter their own opera, will the audience shower them with applause? In “Maestro Martha,” bad guys Pablum and Weaselgraft have a plan to turn a charity concert into a heist by using the power of music…very strange music. Can Martha turn down the volume on their evil scheming before it’s too late?

On Wednesday, February 23, in “Martha Acts Up,” Mrs. Boxwood offers Martha a part in Alice in Wonderland. Martha is thrilled at her opportunity to become a star of the theater, but when she finds out she’s cast as the Cheshire cat, she’s horrified. Will Martha be able to get into character before the night of the show?

The week concludes on Friday, February 25 with the kids’ take on classic Greek myths. In “Myth Me?” and “TD’s Myth Take,” the gang turns a boring, rainy day into fun by acting out Greek myths. The trouble is, TD doesn’t like the way Greek myths end and decides to come up with his own endings. With the help of Martha and Truman, TD puts on a performance that exceeds everyone’s expectations.

Also airing during this special week is “Skits and Mr. Scruffles” and “Brave Truman” on February 22, and “Patrol Dog Martha” and “The Crooning Crook Caper” on February 24. Check local listings for exact airdates and times for all Martha Speaks episodes.
